Dr. Edgerton's Care Philosophy

The naturopathic philosophical tenet, Vis Medicatric Naturae, means the body has an innate capability to heal itself. Yes, your body wants to be healthy! I believe with a whole-food based diet, defined as plant-based with occasional high quality meats and fish, you never have to count calories. Elimination is more important than supplementation. Eliminating inflammatory foods and life style habits. Smart, therapeutic, science-backed supplementation can be beneficial for most cases.
